CFBA: Past Darkness

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Past Darkness
Crossway (April 30, 2013)
Laurel Woiwode


Laurel Woiwode graduated with honors from Jamestown College, earning a Bachelor of Arts in both English and History. She works with ESL students, writes movie reviews at, works on writing and editing projects, and is always ready for outdoor adventures. Laurel grew up in rural North Dakota, has had an avid interest in animals, nature, and literature since childhood, and she is the author of Past Darkness.


Gabrielle Larson is an average, 15 year old girl living in Chicago when tragedy strikes. In the aftermath, she is forced to relocate to rural North Dakota and henceforth spends the next chapter of her life learning to cope with trials involving everything from family to faith. Laurel Woiwode, daughter of critically acclaimed novelist Larry Woiwode, offers here a moving story that will be appreciated by female and male readers alike. Past Darkness is not preachy or heavy-handed, but rather a touching story about the importance of family, the power of music, and the ever-present mercy of God.

If you would like to read the first chapter of Past Darkness, go HERE,

Isn't the cover chilling?  This book will draw you in with it's descriptiveness and make you feel as though you are walking through the pages instead of reading them.  This book was short and sweet, yet a slow read...if that makes any sense!  I had a hard time getting into it, maybe due to the writing style, but the storyline was very good.  You may need a box of kleenex nearby, deals with great loss, and quite a bit of emotion.

This is a Young Adult book, yet can be enjoyed by adults as well!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for review from CFBA
